About Your Host

The August Axel Jewelry Studio is a creative workshop in Venice Beach, CA. The Studio and course offerings were designed to serve a range of skills and interests from talented tinkerers to advanced artists. Our goal is to provide solid and safe bench-instruction, combined with hands-on practice, so artists may operate safely, independently and successfully. COURSES: Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Soldering. Bezel Setting. Tube Setting. Flush Setting. Prong Setting. Metalsmithing. Cold-Connections. Wire Wrapping. Knotting. Private or Group Lessons. And more. INSTRUCTORS: As Owner and Senior Instructor, Christy Sears brings a wealth of knowledge to the bench. With 15+ years of jewelry soldering and metal fabrication, endless patience and a healthy sense of humor, she creates a warm and welcoming learning environment. Not only does she believe in teaching "how", but "why" and this has made all of the difference to her students. All of the August Axel Jewelry Studio instructors create the same atmosphere, so students may reach their goals.

What we'll do

Ready to fill your soul with beautiful arts and amazing inspiration? Join us for this hands-on jewelry-crafting workshop. Wire wrapping is one of the oldest techniques for making handmade jewelry. But don't let that be a turn-off. It's also fun and fresh, which makes you The 2018 Winner of DIY Jewelry Making. YAY YOU!!! You'll learn the nuances of wire-wrapping design as we tackle the technique, create beaded links, integrate charms, wire-wrap briolettes (That's a fancy word for tear-drop shaped beads) and finish with findings. By the end of the class, you'll walk away with a solid understanding of this jewelry-making method and a new piece of jewelry. Bragging-rights, much? Absolutely. Materials Fee: $7 per person which will be collected on-site via cash or CC. Your instructor, Kat, is a former production artist for a HIGH-END Beverly Hills, wire-wrapped jewelry brand. Her wraps are perfection and she’s happy to share her tips for beautiful results! If you like using your hands in this way, also check-out our Bead Knotting Class, also listed on Verlocal. (Owner, Christy, loves to knot beads and watch tv shows about shiplap! LOL) See you soon?
